Is there a easy way khổng lồ remove tha reg info or swap my keys?




I had the same problem & wanted to lớn change the product key lớn another. Unfortunate it"s not as easy as it was on VS2010.

The following steps work:

Remove the registry key containing the license information:HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTLicenses77550D6B-6352-4E77-9DA3-537419DF564B

After you remove sầu this key, VS2012 will tell you that it"s license information is incorrect. Go khổng lồ "Programs and features" and repair VS2012.

After the repair, VS2012 is reverted to a 30 day trial & you can enter a new sản phẩm key. This could also be used to lớn stay in a trial version loop and never enter a producy key.See more: Top Phần Mềm Test Tốc Độ Thẻ Nhớ Trên Pc, Cách Kiểm Tra Tốc Độ Thẻ Nhớ,Usb,Ổ Cứng

more comments 32 For me, with Visual Studio 2013, it wasn"t enough to remove the license key and persize a repair (the repair restored the license key instead of reverting to a trial, và running it without the repair (after deleting the key) claimed the license had expired but wouldn"t let me enter a new key).

I had to:

Discover what license key Visual Studio was looking for in the registry with Process Monitor (it was HKCRLicensesE79B3F9C-6543-4897-BBA5-5BFB0A02BB5C)Completely uninstall Visual Studio 2013 (save sầu CurrentSettings.vssettings first)Delete the license key from the registry by hand in regeditInstall Visual Studio using the publicly available web installer (which doesn"t have sầu any baked-in license key -- it installs a 30-day trial)Enter my new license key(Re-)install updates (Update 1 at this time)Restore settings by importing the backup I made of CurrentSettings.vssettings Share Follow answered Mar 7 "14 at 18:38 CameronCameron 87.7k20đôi mươi gold badges180180 silver badges217217 bronze badges 2 Add a comment | 12 For those of you using Visual Studio 2017 Professional, the registry key is:
